Property code: MELOB

This attractive one bedroom property is one of four properties, converted from former farm buildings nestled on a large 140-acre farm deep within the unique Cornwall countryside.

It's almost impossibly hard to decide which of Cornwall's coastlines is more beautiful, but guests staying at this property needn't choose, as it is almost equidistant from the expansive sands of the North Atlantic and the picturesque fishing villages of the county's south coast. For more restful days, stay closer to home, and enjoy the excellent shared facilities on this tranquil 140-acre farm.

Enjoy a taste of farm life with a stay at this pretty one-bedroomed cottage, nestled amongst its four sister properties in rural Cornwall. The vaulted beamed ceilings in this barn-conversion property create an attractive sense of space and light, and it is far more spacious than your average one-bedroomed holiday home. There is even a private patio to enjoy relaxed leisure time, as well as a large shared garden and a fun games room.

Think of Cornwall and most of us think of beautiful beaches, atmospheric harbour towns, and delicious sea food. All this and more is easily available to guests staying at this farmland property, which is situated just 14 miles inland of the chic coastal town of St Ives and offers top-class restaurants, a stunning beach, and an outpost of the Tate gallery. 11 miles south-west of the cottage the iconic tidal island of St Michael's Mount makes for a special day trip, whilst the magnificent clifftop walks of the Lizard Peninsula can be reached within an 11-mile drive.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Wonderful place cosy and warm didn't want to go home hence booked again for September loved the cake and the greeting on arrival would recommend to anyone

Reviewed by Cecil 21st September 2019

We were making a relatively short visit to this area to visit relations. The cottage suited us well as it was very convenient as a base for our activities. The weather was poor but that did not bother us and the cottage was warm and comfortable.

Reviewed by Abigail 7th September 2019

The cottage was very well equipped with everything you could require, including dishwasher, washing machine, ironing board and iron. Although decorated nicely there was rather a lot of dust everywhere and as we suffer with hay fever found it was causing some allergies. The cottage was spacious and it was nice to have outside space as well.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
